Obstacles

Over the years many have expressed to me obstacles they believe stand between them and Seminary. I would like to know what you feel are such obstacles. I believe knowing these will help us serve you best. Please comment to this blog post or e-mail me at castensk@csl.edu. Obviously our job here is not to remove these obstacles, but to help you and encourage you in the midst of them. The Lord be with you this day.

Still Contemplating


I hope the people who attended Contemplate read this blog. They really made our visitation event quite enjoyable and I want them to know it. Once again I could see the Lord at work through the lives of people. There certainly was fear and apprehension, and I want them to know that they will be in our prayers that the Lord would give them direction and peace. There was also excitement and great joy. I want them to know that they will be in our prayers that the Lord would give them direction and peace. It all comes down to the fact that the Lord is at work no matter what our emotions or reactions may be.

For some the Lord is at work to lead them to prepare for the pastoral or deaconess ministry. For others the Lord is at work leading them to be His servants where they are. Outstanding! May we all " go home and tell them how much the Lord has done for you (Mark 5:19)."
